These are some pretty broad interests and we can work on narrowing them down now that you have joined WA. It also looks like we have quite a few things in common as I have many of the same interests as you. I’m also a huge gamer myself and I’m passionate about electronics. One of my very first niches was electronics and this ended up being a busted niche and I failed miserably at it when I first started.
Once people visit your website, read what you have to offer, and buy the products you recommended on your website you’ll get part of that sale. I’m glad you have opened your account with WA. What’s your username so I can look you up and we can talk more over there? Wealthy Affiliate is free to get started. This way you can get a feel for what you’ll be doing here before you spend any of your hard earned money.
It’s Amber! I don’t know if you remember me, but I’m happy I came across your article earlier this year and joined WA. I know I’m not on there at the moment, but it really brought out my interest in online business and really gave me hope for my dreams of traveling. I realized that this is actually how many people who are traveling do it. I hope to be back on WA as soon as I can!
Hi Jack, firstly, congratulations on your success. I’ve been trying to start an online business since 2014. I searched the net back then and came across WA and I think I joined the free start, but not knowing what I was doing, and with little patience, I soon moved away from that. I do remember you Jack back then when you started… The past couple of weeks, I’ve been receiving emails from SFM and was about to join up this morning. I was doing a little more research and came upon this your review. Thank you Jack, as I’m not in financial position to invest in SFM and as I’m still a novice today I choose to take up the free training with WA as I would like to position myself for retirement in eight years to have a successful online business. See you on the inside Jack and bless you for your honesty and sharing.
When I first stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate in 2007 I had to pay the full price just so I could see what it looks like and what it really is. This program has changed a lot in the past 11 years and you can try it out completely Free. The starter account is $0, no catch, no credit card required – so you could decide if it’s right for you without risking a single dime of your hard earned money.
With your free Wealthy Affiliate membership, you'll also get a pretty nice keyword research tool. You'll be able to do 30 searches per month with it. It's essentially enough to get your research done for your first website. The keyword research lesson and tool are my favorite parts of Wealthy Affiliate. They have given me a serious advantage over my competition.
Some advertisers offer multi-tier programs that distribute commission into a hierarchical referral network of sign-ups and sub-partners. In practical terms, publisher "A" signs up to the program with an advertiser and gets rewarded for the agreed activity conducted by a referred visitor. If publisher "A" attracts publishers "B" and "C" to sign up for the same program using his sign-up code, all future activities performed by publishers "B" and "C" will result in additional commission (at a lower rate) for publisher "A".
There are two ways to approach affiliate marketing: You can offer an affiliate program to others or you can sign up to be another business's affiliate. As the business driving an affiliate program, you'll pay your affiliates a commission fee for every lead or sale they drive to your website. Your main goal should be to find affiliates who'll reach untapped markets. For example, a company with an e-zine may make a good affiliate because its subscribers are hungry for resources. So introducing your offer through a "trusted" company can grab the attention of prospects you might not have otherwise reached.
Thanks for kind words about my website, I really appreciate it. This template is from Wealthy Affiliate and I had another WA member make that logo for me for Free. This goes to show that WA members go out of their way to help each other out. If you are looking to join a community where people actually care about seeing you succeed online and don’t just wanna take your money then you are in the right place.
After completing the first 10 lessons of the “Getting Started” course — which took me about 7 days, since I had other projects to take care of — I saw that I was being offered a 59% discount on the first month if I decided to buy the Premium membership, before a countdown timer reached zero. (In fact, since I got in, I was given 7 days — not minutes, or hours -– to decide; this was nothing like those “act right now or you’ll never see this again” pressure marketing strategy).
Hey Matthew, there are many scams out there that promise you the world but have little to nothing to offer you. I’m glad that you have decided to get started with the starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate and I look forward to working with you man on building your own online business. If you need my help or have any questions feel free to leave me a message and I would be glad to help you out.
Writing product reviews are an excellent way to enhance your credibility as an affiliate marketer. This is especially easy with information products like e-books which are relatively inexpensive. After establishing some steady income it may even be worth buying higher-end products, provided you get in touch with the product creator to work out a strategic marketing plan that takes you to the next level.
Thanks for the informative article! I’m just wondering since I signed up for some course in the past but they required more time time investment than I expected. As I have some other personals goals so I’m just wondering as you said it takes few weeks to get things up and running, but getting commission is different story. So what is required after having website done to get commission? and How long would that take? and how much time does it take to for regular maintenance? Thanks so much!
Watch them. How are other content creators in your niche utilizing advertising? What types of ads do they use? What are they promoting? What do they talk about repeatedly (if you keep seeing the same affiliate product show up again and again, there’s a good chance they’re making good money from it)? If you see a product or service they talk about that jogs your memory and you can ethically promote it too, find affiliate information by the methods described above.
Hello Jack. I trust all is well with you. Please help me with a question I have. I would like to join wealthy affiliate after reading about your experiences with said company. I am new and know nothing about this business venture. I think, if I am correct being an affiliate is you are selling something on-line to the on-line public. And then you receive a commission for your sale. What I would like to know is after joining WA and studying their programs, you are set up and ready to go, where do you go to find products to promote and sell? And how do you know what products to promote? Is it like guessing , such as I think this product sounds like it ought to sell well and so on… please answer this one question. T hanks Jack. Have a good day I reside in Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA.
Can you run a successful business by only using the free membership option at Wealthy Affiliate? Well, you can, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Instead, I recommend you sign up for the free Wealthy Affiliate membership as a way to try things out. Honestly, the free membership is set up to be a bit of a teaser to get you to sign up for premium eventually, but most of us expect that going in. What’s nice about it is you can judge for yourself, based on the free membership, whether it is worth it for you to sign up for premium. Ultimately, only you can decide if Wealthy Affiliate is high quality or not. You will get more than enough of an idea by signing up for their free membership option. On average, about 1 in every eight people upgrade to a premium membership.
First and foremost I do Buisness with Wealthy Affiliate and as the first time building my online business I have earned income by referring my friends, colleges and family member to WA and I had build my own sites afar from WA and selling products ALREADY!! They are NOT A SCAM!! Unlike other business like Aspire Digital Altitude or Counter Profits etc.... As my experience continues with Wealthy Affiliates they were the most inexpensive services provided and not just only that there are other people that already has online business thatg needed more training to have their business to drive more traffic through the search engines for cheaper price on the plug ins versus an outsource other than Wealthy Affiliate.
However, the biggest thing, that influenced my decision toward this company was the fact that, they allow people to test drive (try them out) as a free member. As in free member for as long as one wishes. Also, they allow the more serious ones to take advantage of their premium membership which is the maximum learning, that's packed with tons of value and support.
The keyword research tool is a unique in-house tool. It's different than any other tool out there because it shows you how many websites are targeting your exact keyword. This is invaluable. With unlimited searches, you'll be able to find hundreds of low-competition keywords to target on your website. This means you'll be able to get on the first page much easier since you know how much competition you have.
If you haven’t done so already I would get started by signing up for your FREE account by clicking on the “Become A Member” button above, fill out a few details and you are in. I will be getting in contact with you within your first hour to see how things are going for you and to answer any additional questions you may have getting started. I really am looking forward to working with you Adam and helping you build a business that you will be proud of.
The advanced information in Wealthy Affiliate is spread out and hard to find. It mostly comes from other professional affiliates who make training for the Training HQ. If I had to assign a number to it, I would say Wealthy Affiliate is designed to take someone from making zero dollars to making $10,000/month. Wealthy Affiliate is not designed to take you from $10,000 to $50,000/month.
I’m retired after 33 years as a civil servant with the FDA, handicapped (in a wheelchair). I love my pc, tablets, and surfing the www. I live in central Arkansas and I purchase lots from Amazon and love it. I once had a city website (no longer do) for our city and used Amazon’s affiliate program; however my understanding is that Amazon no longer allows affiliates in Arkansas. Is that still true? I love art (painting, both digital and traditional), reading, photography and surfing the web. I spent my last 10-15 years with the FDA working in the IT arena with it training, helpdesk and website creating and support.
1.When you join their affiliate program you will be given your very own affiliate id which is called your affiliate link. You will need to put this link on your website. When someone clicks on your affiliate link on your site to Microsofts website, this will install a cookie on their computer which is what is used to track where people are coming from.
NO ONE! I asked and asked. Other trial members asked. But we got zero proof of anything. And confronted with my requests, all I got were bad excuses from the owners of WA. “People are afraid that you copy their website.” LOL :D) As if I anyone could simply copy a website and steal their business. Totally ridiculous. If this was possible then anyone could easily find a topranking website on Google, copy it and get rich. LOL. And all this “secrecy” totally went against their proclaimed ideology about a helping and sharing community.
I built 10 websites to 10 pages each, across 6 different niches. Built some socials to them and earned a few links to each one. I tracked the rankings for each site and noticed Google really took to 4 of my sites. So I poured most of my energy into my favorite two sites that started ranking fast and just let the other ones sit and age. Every now and then I go back and work on the others as long term projects, but I just ran with two of the four that were ranking well.
I think that now is the perfect time for you to sign up for your Free account by clicking on the “Join Now” button above. I would love to help you get started building an online business. Since school will be out here in the next month or so you will have lots of time to work on this. I will be there to help you out every step of the way and explain everything to you.
At this point, you should already have content written on your website, you know how to generate traffic and you might be getting traffic. So, on this phase you will learn ways of converting that traffic into revenue. There are plenty of ways of generating income with your website, so pay attention carefully. As said before, Phase 1,2 and 3 are super important to your success.
When I say that I love Wealthy Affiliate, I’m not just saying that because I’m an affiliate for them. I’m a very active premium member at Wealthy Affiliate and love interacting with people on a daily basis. If you join, you’ll see me posting on people’s profiles, answering questions, chatting in the live chat area, and I have private personal messaging conversations multiple times per day.
Warrior Forum WSO’s – This is the only option on the list I will actually tell you to stay away from. Warrior Forum WSO’s are almost always a rip-off and no amount of them will adequately teach you how to truly build a real online business. This forum community is owned by Freelancer.com and they will allow just about anyone to sell just about anything. The majority of them are very cheap, but once you give them your email address, get ready to be spammed. They also almost always include “upsells” where the initial product may only cost a few bucks, but all the other products they sell you within the first product costs substantially more. I could write all day about why you should never purchase a Warrior Forum WSO, but if you want to learn more, you can read my article about Warrior Forum WSO’s here.
Thank you so much for answering my question! About the celebrity website I thought I could build a website about a celebrity and her fans who come to my website for the latest news about her might click different adds in my website if they are interested in sth. Since most of her fans are young I can advertise different products that young people want to buy. That was my idea. But since this won’t work I’ll try to think of sth else. But I have 1 more question. I’m a college student and I can’t spend a lot of time working for the website. Is it possible to make money if I work only 1 hour a day? I know it depend on how I work too and not only how much time I spend, but I just want to have an idea of how much I can earn a month if I work only 1 hour a day. Can I make like 100$ a month? I’m not trying to get rich with the website I just want to make some money online.
The community is positive and I see help being offered 24/7 at least she tried to help you. With that statment the readers will know we try to help with every question asked. The program is built around helping real people build a real business I am a member and I could say Im not dumb for becomming one. I Have been around the online marketing business for eight years.
Hey Kim, There is no such thing as a dumb question. You won’t know unless you ask and I’m glad you asked this question. When you join Wealthy Affiliate you can promote anything you want, I usually recommend people to start out with a passion or hobby. There are millions of different products you could sell on your website from places like Amazon, Click bank and many others. You can do this by signing up to their affiliate program which is free to join.
An influencer is an individual who holds the power to impact the purchasing decisions of a large segment of the population. This person is in a great position to benefit from affiliate marketing. They already boast an impressive following, so it’s easy for them to direct consumers to the seller’s products through social media posts, blogs, and other interactions with their followers. The influencers then receive a share of the profits they helped to create.
I don't promote WA and the training pushed me in a direction to promote something else. The idea is that you can create a business online working withing a category that you have passion in. For me that is woodworking, but for others this is likely soemthing completely different. There are lots of directions you can head. People that say that the training is all about promoting the same company obviously have not gone through the training. I didn't get a sense of that.
You also should not join Wealthy Affiliate if you don’t enjoy the community / social aspect of it. A huge part of Wealthy Affiliate is the ability to communicate with other members. It’s a “help and be helped” community. If you have no interest in setting up your profile, asking questions, supporting others, chatting in the live chat sessions, or doing any sort of participation, you will not get the full benefit of the service.
I usually get back to my referrals questions within 24 hours or less with a detailed response. When you sign up as a premium member under me this is one of the added bonuses that comes with your membership and I will be there to support you in any way I possibly can. I don’t want you to take my word for it though. I want you to experience this for yourself, Stephanie!
What this does mean, though, is that because you will learn whitehat techniques you have to do the work to see the results. This makes it harder to rank any of your websites on Google, but this is a good thing. This just points more to the fact that Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam. What they teach you are real SEO techniques that even professionals use.
I would suggest that you open up your FREE account at WA, fill out your profile by uploading a picture and writing a brief description about your self. After that get started on the training lessons, this is all explained in full detail in the training. I look forward to working with you man and if you have anymore questions feel free to drop me a message or leave them on here.
I'm thinking about building a new site and partnering with someone. We would split the commission 50/50 and we would have to talk and see how to split up the work based on our skill sets. I would own the domain and you would open the affiliate accounts and receive the payment. After the payment is issued, you send me my half. Or we could have a joint PayPal account and divvy up the payments from there (I do this now with a friend and it works well). And of course, I would give preference to premium Wealthy Affiliate members when picking a partner because I know they know their stuff.
Designed to create a huge amount of traffic at all times, these sites focus on building an audience of millions. These websites promote products to their massive audience through the use of banners and contextual links. This method offers superior exposure and improves conversion rates, resulting in a top-notch revenue for both the seller and the affiliate.
Christian you nailed this review.Talk about transparency it is definitely that. You didn’t water down the review to reflect the fact that you are promoting WAI have been with WA entering my 3rd month. The way that you reviewed Wealth Affliate,if I were looking for a company to join to learn about affiliate marketing;this would be my choice.You left no stone unturned.The way that your website has been designed,reflects the training and the work you put into it.Professionally done! I applaud you!
4. Zero Entitlement – This has been the death of many potentially successful marketers on the internet. Affiliate marketing is no get rich quick scheme — it’s a business that requires dedication, effort and hard work. If you feel entitled to earn money because you placed a few ads or you followed a guide and are expecting instant or guaranteed returns, you will be killed! Failure is just a lesson learnt and a step closer to success.
The community aspect is also something that I really love and something other programs fail to provide. If you have difficulty with anything in the process, many members will able to help you instantly in WA Live Chat but what I love most is that people share their ideas and experiences. Listen to these experiences, learn from other people’s mistakes and brainstorm with others!
I openly disclose the fact that I will receive a small affiliate commission if someone decides to join WA Premium using one of my affiliate link. There is no compensation for starter members. I often tell people that they are free to join WA without using my link but I encourage them to do so if they liked my review and the effort I put into explaining what it is and what it does. If someone thinks I don’t deserve being compensated, they can join directly through WA main site, without using my links, no hard feelings. The goal here is to answer all the questions about WA.
Want to know a little secret about this site? When I first started this site, I only planned on monetizing by selling my OWN affiliate marketer training course. About halfway through creating my course, I realized that I would never be able to provide the type of quality product I intended. Even if I could, it would become outdated so fast that in just a couple years, I wouldn’t be able to sell it anymore.
